Review: It's Hip Hop, Baby DVD

Are you looking for a new DVD for your little one? Want something that might even interest them in getting up and dancing?! Then I've found the one for YOU! It's Hip Hop, Baby! is a new high energy DVD series for the preschool set! It reminds me a bit of Hi-5, if you're familiar with the Australian series that can also be seen on Discovery Kids. My 5 year old watches it, totally enthralled, and will even get up and try out some of Miss Dre's Hip Hop moves!

From the DVD cover:
Started by a mom who wanted to help her son learn faster. She quickly discovered that music and movement can unlock the brilliance in every child. Children, and even babies, will want to move, groove, and dance to the fun beats of this educational DVD. Accelerate your child's learning through music and movement.

The show is awash in bright colors and is broken into child-friendly segment lengths. Children singing and dancing, videos of familiar settings and objects, and puppets are all featured, along with Miss Dre's exercise segment, where she teaches Hip Hop moves that are appropriate for preschoolers! I can see this being very popular in daycare and preschool settings as well.

The DVD series has received an award from iParenting Media and is reasonably priced at $13.49 at Amazon! Each DVD lasts around 30 minutes.
